To hell! The best wireless headphone comes from Berlin

Stiftung Warentest has tested 18 such wireless Bluetooth wireless headsets, including top brands such as Bang & Olufsen, Sennheiser or Bose. But the test winner comes surprisingly from Germany. The devil Real Blue from Berlin for 170 euros prevailed with the “good” rating of 2.2. Buy tip: He is available for 230 euros as a Real Blue NC with active noise cancellation.
Conclusion of the tester to the winner: “Sounds balanced: good bass and treble The Real Blue can be controlled via a touch field on the outside of the capsules, but this does not always work as desired.Solid processed, foldable, transport box, remote control in the included cable. ” The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H4 (210 Euro), the Sennheiser HD 4.40BT (price tip for 85 Euro!) And the Skullcandy Crusher Wireless (130 Euro) finished just a little behind the devil on the next places. For the Skullcandy with adjustable vibration function, the official product testers used the hip word “bass fat” for the first time in a test. Her verdict: “He should inspire hip-hop and rockers.”
Amazon: Software announces too slow employees
At Amazon, not the boss announces the employees – but the computer. At least that’s the company’s logistics center in Baltimore, Maryland. There will be loud The Verge More than ten percent of the workforce is fired annually because they do not meet the pace and efficiency targets. According to documents that The Verge Amazon was there between August 2017 and September 2018 automatically separated from 300 of the 2,500 employees.
The performance is measured by machine, and the system also generates the terminations if the performance is too low. Supervisors do not have to intervene but can still stop the dismissal manually. To monitor the workers is also the function “time off task” with the abbreviation TOT, which measures when the employees are not busy because they go to the bathroom, for example. Amazon has opposite The Verge granted the use of the system. So far it is not known whether the automatic fire system is also used at other locations.
New Tesla Roadster creates over 1,000 kilometers

In early April, Epic Games silently removed siphoning from the standard Fortnite game modes. Only now did the US developer explain the reasons: “Many of the players were frustrated by this because they felt increasingly hopeless against absolute top players with high energy levels.” Siphon has led to the top 10 percent playing more, while the remaining 90 percent were discouraged and played less. ” In Arena Mode, however, Siphoning remains.
